  • Comparison of soil-aggregate crushing-energy meters
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 42Author(s): Huawei Pi, David R. Huggins, Nicholas P. Webb, Brenton Sharratt Dry aggregate stability (DAS) is an important factor influencing soil wind erosion, dust emission and crop production. Historically and to the present, DAS has been determined using a horizontal- or vertical-plate crushing meter (Soil-Aggregate Crushing-Energy Meter, hereafter SACEM). The intent of this paper was to compare the performance of horizontal-plate SACEM with a commercial penetrometer (Mohr Digi-Test, hereafter MDT). The performance of both instruments was tested on aggregates collected from various soil types, crop rotations, soil amendments, and tillage systems across the inland Pacific Northwest United States (iPNW). Results indicated no consistently significant difference in DAS measured by the MDT and SACEM. However, there was evidence that SACEM under-estimated or MDT over-estimated DAS by 74 to 368% in measuring the stability of strong aggregates (DAS > 3 J kg−1). Both instruments measured higher DAS for no-tillage summer fallow, winter wheat-summer fallow (WW-SF) rotations, and no green manure treatments compared with other tillage practices, oilseed rotations, and green manure treatments. The SACEM that has historically been used in measuring soil DAS can be replaced by the commercial penetrometer (MDT). Nonetheless, differences in the performance of instruments in measuring the stability of strong aggregates poses risks.
       
  • Evaluating the SandFlow, an acoustic sediment transport sensor
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 42Author(s): Mahrooz Rezaei, Dirk Goossens, Michel J.P.M. Riksen The SandFlow is an acoustic device for detecting and measuring aeolian sand transport. It is based on the FlowCapt sensor, an instrument developed to measure aeolian snow transport. This study investigates the performance of the SandFlow in relation to the Saltiphone and the Modified Wilson and Cooke sampler, two devices frequently used in aeolian sand transport. The performance of the SandFlow was tested during three wind erosion events on the Dutch barrier island Terschelling and also in laboratory tests. Results show that the SandFlow adequately registers the periods of aeolian sand transport provided sand transport is sufficiently intense. For low sand transport the SandFlow is less accurate, although the periods with sand transport may still be detected. The sand transport fluxes measured by the SandFlow were lower than those measured by the MWAC although they remained within the same order of magnitude. Laboratory measurements showed that the efficiency of the SandFlow to register sand transport is close to 100% for sand coarser than 300 µm. For finer sand, efficiency decreases rapidly although the instrument remains usable for particles coarser than 150 µm provided appropriate corrections for efficiency are made. This study shows that the SandFlow can be used for aeolian sand transport provided the erosion event is strong enough and the particles are not too fine.
       
  • Effects of checkerboard sand barrier belt on sand transport and dune
           advance
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 42Author(s): Li Liu, Tianli Bo In this paper, experimental and numerical studies have been carried out in the design of the checkerboard sand barrier belt (CSBB) in anti-desertification project. Field observations show that the dune speed after CSBB was significantly reduced when checkerboard sand barriers were laid. The closer to the edge of CSBB, the more obvious the decrease of dune speed after CSBB is, the reduction rate of propagation speed of the edge of desertified land (δ = 1 − v/vno, here, v is the propagation speed of the edge of desertified land with CSBB, vno is the propagation speed of the edge of desertified land without CSBB) is about 0.7 at 200 m after CSBB. When the width and spacing are respectively 400 m and 700 m, CSBB can achieve the full paving effect, which confirms the effectiveness of the laying scheme of “strip patterns” (SP) proposed by Bo and Zheng (2013). Based on the model proposed by Bo and Zheng (2013), the optimal sizes of the spacing and width of CSBB (Smax and W0) were found, and the expression of degradation length (DL) of CSBB with time, annual wind regime and wind speed is given. Moreover, a laying method for CSBB is given, i.e., the width (W) and spacing (S) of CSBB should satisfy W>DL+W0 and S
       
  • Diverse sources of aeolian sediment revealed in an arid landscape in
           southeastern Iran using a modified Bayesian un-mixing model
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): Hamid Gholami, Mojtaba Dolat Kordestani, Junran Li, Matt W. Telfer, Aboalhasan Fathabadi Identifying and quantifying source contributions of aeolian sediment is critical to mitigate local and regional effects of wind erosion in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world. The purpose of this study is to apply sediment source fingerprinting methods to determine the source contributions of the aeolian sands of a small erg with varied and complex potential sources upwind. A two-stage statistical processes was applied to select optimum composite fingerprints to discriminate the potential sources of the aeolian sands from the Jazmurian plain located in southern Kerman Province, southeastern Iran. A modified Bayesian un-mixing model was applied to quantify uncertainties associated with the source contributions, and the model was evaluated by a mean absolute fit (MAF) method. The results suggest that four geochemical properties (Cr, Co, Ni, and Li) were the optimum fingerprints for solving the modified Bayesian un-mixing model. The results show that there is great diversity in terms of the sources of sand, and that, contrary to expectation, sediments associated with an adjacent large ephemeral lake are the least significant in supplying sediment to the erg. Sand-sheet-derived sands and alluvial sediments dominate the majority of samples, and are likely attributable to relatively short-distance aeolian flux, but substantial contributions from alluvial fans and terraces likely represent longer distance pathways. These results highlight the need to consider sediment provenance on a site-by-site basis. The MAF evaluation showed that the modified Bayesian un-mixing model is an effective method to aid aeolian sediment fingerprinting. This method may be applied to assess aeolian sediment sources in other desert regions with strong aeolian activities.

           windbreaks
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): Rui Ma, Junran Li, Yanjun Ma, Lishan Shan, Xuelin Li, Linyuan Wei Windbreaks have been widely used in northern China and many other arid and semiarid areas in the world to reduce wind speed, wind erosion and counter sand dune encroachment. Although there has been a considerable number of studies examining the changes of airflow and the shelter efficiencies for windbreaks composed of different plant types, more in-depth studies are still needed to investigate the case of mixed windbreaks. Here, we used model plants to establish two representative plant architectures, namely the inter-plant and inter-row, and to measure the airflow speed by means of wind tunnel experiments. Results of our study show that there are a number of distinct airflow regions, including an acceleration region above the canopy, a large deceleration region within the canopy and leeward of the windbreaks, and a local acceleration region below the canopy of first few rows. These airflow regions were independent of windbreak plant architecture. The inter-row architecture of windbreaks, however, showed a stronger wind reduction inside the windbreak as well as on the leeside than that of the inter-plant architecture. The highest wind reduction ratios occurred at the canopy leeside edge, which was around 60% for the inter-plant windbreak and over 80% for the inter-row windbreak. These results provided strong evidence that the inter-row windbreak plant architecture should be favored to decrease wind speed and counter wind erosion in the arid northern China and similar regions globally.
       
  • Application of a Bayesian belief network model for assessing the risk of
           wind erosion: A test with data from wind tunnel experiments
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): I. Kouchami-Sardoo, H. Shirani, I. Esfandiarpour-Boroujeni, H. Bashari The complexity of the interactions between drivers in wind erosion processes and the absence of adequate and reliable data are major constraints to achieving a quantitative assessment of wind erosion. Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs) provide a useful approach to address real-world problems, where available data and knowledge are disparate, limited or uncertain. We investigated the potential use of BBNs to assess soil erosion risk in a typical arid region that experiences severe wind erosion. The developed framework was based on a standard risk assessment procedure, where the risk of wind erosion was quantified by incorporating assessments of consequence and vulnerability. Performance of the constructed model was evaluated using scenario testing, sensitivity analysis, and wind-tunnel measurements. The model provided reasonable estimates of the soil vulnerability, consequence, and risk to/of wind erosion. The results showed that weather and management factors were the most important parameters affecting wind erosion risk. Based on the fitted regression lines, there were positive (R2 = 0.82) and negative (R2 = 0.72) relationships between the measured wind erosion rates and the predicted probabilities to ‘high’ and ‘low’ vulnerability classes, respectively.
       
  • A new approach in reducing sand deposition on railway tracks to improve
           transportation
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): R. Mehdipour, Z. Baniamerian Aeolian particle transport involves uplift from the ground, dispersion and deposition back to the surface. Integrated effects of these processes, in general, are of great importance for a wide range of reasons mostly because of their unwanted deposition on the railway tracks, environmental impact, degradation of air quality and risks to human health. In sandy dry lands Aeolian sand accumulation on railway tracks is a major problem, since it directly affects safety of railway transportation, apart from decreasing the speed in railway transportation. The most common methods for preventing sand deposition on railway tracks like, building galleries (Gallery is a short length tunnel-shape cover which is built and installed over the railway track to avoid sand deposition. It is commonly applied in regions which are more probable of sand storm.), fences or increasing plant varieties around railway are restricted to special situations and not as effective. Efficient prevention of sand deposition is a great challenge that requires a comprehensive knowledge of wind-sand flow behavior. In the present study, an efficient 2D and 3D CFD model for simulation of two-phase gas-particle problems, as the sandy air flow, is developed. Conventional methods for preventing sand deposition on the railway track as well as an innovative method for avoiding sand deposition are presented and their effectiveness is evaluated by the proposed CFD model. It has been shown both by the CFD model and the accomplished empirical works that galleries cannot prevent sand deposition effectively. Instead, the innovative proposed method is proved to reduce sand deposition near the embankment, along with decreasing sand content of flowing wind.
       
  • Assessment of the distribution and activity of dunes in Iran based on
           mobility indices and ground data
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): H.R. Abbasi, C. Opp, M. Groll, H. Rohipour, A. Gohardoust Sand dune movement causes severe damage to infrastructure and rural settlements in Iran every year. Identifying active dunes and monitoring areas with migrating sand are important prerequisites for mitigating these damages. With regard to this objective, the spatial variation of the wind energy environment based on the sand drift potential (DP) was calculated from 204 meteorological stations. Three commonly used dune activity models – the Lancaster mobility index (1988), the Tsoar mobility index (2005), and the index developed by Yizhaq et al. (2009) – were used for the evaluation of Iran’s sand dune activity. The analysis of the indices showed that the dune activity was characterized by great spatial variation across Iran’s deserts. All three models identified fully active dunes in the Sistan plain, the whole of the Lut desert, as well as in the Zirkuh Qaien and Deyhook regions, while the dunes in the northern part of Rig Boland, Booshroyeh and in the Neyshabor dunefields were categorized as stabilized dunes. For other dunes, the models show a less unified activity classification, with the Lancaster and Yizhaq models having more similar results while the Tsoar model stands more apart. Based on these model results and fields observations, a modified Lancaster mobility index has been applied to show a more realistic spatial variation of sand dunes activity in Iran’s desert areas.
       
  • Timing and development of sand dunes in the Golestan Province, northern
           Iran—Implications for the Late-Pleistocene history of the Caspian Sea
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Aeolian Research, Volume 41Author(s): Neda Rahimzadeh, Farhad Khormali, Natacha Gribenski, Sumiko Tsukamoto, Martin Kehl, Anna Pint, Farshad Kiani, Manfred Frechen The Golestan Province, in northern Iran, presents a rich record of aeolian deposits, including thick loess-palaeosol sequences and prominent sand dunes. While the loess chronology in this area is relatively well constrained, the formation time of the dunes remains largely overlooked, despite their potential to provide valuable information in terms of palaeoclimate conditions and Caspian Sea level changes. In this study, we provide the first reconstruction of dune evolution in Golestan Province, based on geomorphic and sedimentological investigations, high resolution granulometric and microfossil analyses, and luminescence dating. Luminescence analysis includes quartz post-infrared pulsed optically stimulated luminescence (Post-IR pulsed OSL) and K-feldspar post-IR infrared stimulated luminescence (pIRIR) measurements. Luminescence ages indicate that the studied dunes accreted within a few thousand years ranging from 10.6 ± 1.6 ka to 8.4 ± 1.4 ka, during the Holocene. Based on the geomorphological evidence and geographical setting, the dunes observed in the Caspian lowland are of parabolic type, which would reflect arid to semi-arid palaeoenvironmental conditions with sparse vegetation and predominance of easterly winds at the time of dune formation. Grain size distribution analysis and sedimentological investigations indicate a clear influence of the Caspian coast environment on the dunes development, in addition to probable sediment input from nearby fluvial systems. The spatial and temporal distribution pattern of the studied dunes reflects a quick regression of the Caspian Sea during the Early Holocene, probably following the so-called Mangyshlak regression.
